#3 overall paid app is a scam

According to Android Police, the #3 overall paid app (Virus Shield) in the Play Store is a scam. The app doesn't do anything but fake being a security app. What is interesting is the app was available for a week, had over 10,000 downloads, and had a rating of 4.7 so the normal red flags weren't there. This is a case where being as open as the Play Store is, is definitely a negative. Since the article was posted yesterday the app has been taken down.
